Special spaghetti meat sauce - La Tomatina

After Cappacino Foam, we have spaghetti sauce... ;)
This is a special spaghetti meat sauce..... It's called "La Tomatina"!!

  • Meat - 40,000 people
  • 115,000 kilograms of ripe, juicy plum tomatoes

Cooking Structions:
  • Add all ingredients into a big pot (the size of main square of Bunol, Spain)
  • No need to boil
  • Need thoughtfully squeeze the tomatoes beforehand to soften it up before throwing at other people to cook them.

Serve: 0 person (Nobody wants to eat it afterwards!)

The Spanish tomato festival, La Tomatina, is the world's largest tomato fight.

The festival dates back to 1945, when two people at a carnival in Bunol, just outside Valencia, reportedly began hurling tomatoes at each other in a heated argument. The festival, which has officially been part of Spain's national heritage since 2002, takes place on the last Wednesday in August.
